Using Visual Aids

Visuals must reinforce what you are saying.

Using Visual Aids
‡ Don t plan on writing on your slides ‡ Keep the number of words per slide limited about 30 words unless quoting

Using Visual Aids
‡ Use color for emphasis on slides but avoid yellow and orange

‡ Do not use yellow because it is very hard to see ‡ Do not use orange because it is hard to see

Questions-Interruptions and Equipment Problems
‡ Tell audience if you will take questions during the talk or just at the end of the presentation

Questions-Interruptions and Equipment Problems
Keep answers to questions brief and to the point if you are not sure or don t know say so. Good Question I will look into that and get back to you

Questions-Interruptions and Equipment Problems

If the question is not easily answered or off the topic suggest to talk after the presentation ends.

If the question will be answered in the future part of the talk say so and move on.
